Our guide for putting in these professional-looking baseboards for rounded corners with the ¾’’ Bullnose Trim Gauge, is below.

STEP 1: PREP YOUR BASEBOARD PIECES
Your baseboard items should be at least slightly longer than your wall sections. Measure your small pieces to the size of the nook they'll end on, but then cut with the additional board on the tip so that you can make your mark. Do this for both sides.

STEP three: MAKE YOUR CUTS
Along with your pieces in hand, use your marks to make 22.5-degree cuts being careful not to lower the mark (depart your mark visible after you cut). You’ll want these angled in to suit together with your middle-piece.

A key difference between the standard 45-degree cuts and the rounded trim corners is the middle- piece. The piece will slot in between your two lower pieces to convey the corner together. These must be 5/8’’ with two outward-dealing with 22.5-degree cuts.

STEP 5: FITTING
Along with your pieces in place, go back to your corner and dry-fit. Align the lower on your size items to the mark on the wall to make sure they still match correctly.
